ASHVILLE HELP FEEDING BRISTOL PREVENT CHILD HUNGER
Ashville employees gave up a day this summer to help out at Feeding Bristol Charity and the Healthy Holidays project.
This Bristol charity is focused on driving systemic change towards zero-hunger. Given the urgent requirement over the holiday period, they responded this summer by providing food for children during the holidays who normally receive free school meals.
As part of their work, during the school holidays Feeding Bristol is working in partnership with FareShare South West and Zest Catering to prepare and deliver free food for children at community groups, helping to reduce some of the pressure on families during the holidays.
The volunteers from Ashville were split into two teams, with one team helping to prepare and make lunches for hundreds of children, whilst the second team delivered the lunches to various locations throughout Bristol.
It was a very rewarding day for all and a great opportunity to get a valuable insight into the much needed work this charity undertakes and help in a small way.
Feeding Bristol is committed to driving systemic change to increase food security across all social and cultural communities of Bristol – ultimately striving for ‘Zero Hunger’. Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of immediate provision for those in need, and driving influencing long-term local economic and national policy changes that aim to improve food security of all Bristolians.
